(Fixer, as you designed the lab and the critters in it, I think it falls on you to either SG this yourself, or hand off the duty to someone else)
Viscaria adjusts the tension on the turning screw, and steps back from the makeshift distillation apparatus. She frowns, reminding herself once again that her forge-companions will be able to give her better materials to work with by the end of the season. Still, the materials here would do for a basic vis-extraction process. Perhaps she shouldn't let it run on its own, the covenant seems sorely lacking in vis.
She turns, intending to pick up the small silver ring she planned to store the vis in, and leaps back in horror as she sees a small worm that appears to be eating her ring.
She pulls a silver rod from her sleeve, points it grandly at the creature and shouts "Crystal Dart!"
(OOC: MuTe 10, Muto 5 + Te 8 + Te Affinity 3 + Aura 5 + W&G 2 + simple die roll 8 = 31, which should beat the buggers Might, if it has any)
She walks over to the wooden table, and picks it up with a pair of wooden tongs, compliments of the previous owner. Dangling the remains (?) of the worm, she wonders to herself aloud, "What are you?"
Then, remembering herself, she puts it down, takes her necklace off, and places The Impassive Face against the wall. If the stone appears to be too well crafted to respond (the Stone Tell of the Mind That Sits only affects natural stone), then she grabs the tongs-with-worm in one hand, and heads out into the underground to find somewhere suitable but nearby.
Trying the necklace again, she waves the worm-corpse in front of the cave wall and asks, "What is this?"
(OOC: I was going to make this her seasonal activity thread, but I don't know how to do what I want -- study the worms and figure out what to do about them. I was thinking that might count as Investigating Enchantment, or maybe even Refining the lab.)
